Encyclopedia > Komae, Tokyo

Komae (狛江市; -shi) is a city located in Tokyo, Japan.


As of 2003, the city has an estimated population of 77,390 and the density of 12,111.11 persons per kmē. The total area is 6.39 kmē. It is the smallest city in Tokyo prefecture both in population and area.


The city was founded on October 1, 1970.


Before the Second World War, it was mainly a farming village. Following the establishment of Komae Station on the Odakyu Line in 1950, the city began to attract urban workers, and now it is essentially a "bedtown" for workers commuting to central Tokyo.


Komae is nestled along the Tama River, and in September 1, 1970, there were serious floods. Today, the riverbanks have been strengthened.


The town has a group of festival mascots called Komarangers; their purpose is to cheer up the citizens of the town. They come in five colors: red, blue, green, yellow, and pink.

The vast metropolitan capital of Japan, Tokyo is Japanese for "capital of the east".
Tokyo is centred around the huge Imperial Palace and gardens, and forms an enormous urban area with neighbouring city Yokohama and various smaller cities.
Tokyo is not actually a city, but a special type of prefecture called a "to." The Meiji Restoration in the mid 19th century sparked the reorganization of Japan's provinces, and the city of Edo in the province of Musashi became the prefecture of Tokyo in 1871.
